Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

A modern version of the old European folk-tale about the cruel, blue-bearded prince and his many disappearing wives, Bartok's opera 'Bluebeard's Castle' is a metaphor for the impossibility of complete love between a man and a woman. A vast orchestra, one of Bartok's largest, supports the vocal lines, moving deftly from moments of chamber-music-like delicacy to massive thunderheads of sound that underline the characters' inner agony.
